  1. That's pretty impressive at that price.. and no obscure 'never heard of' numbers. Thanks for that
  2. Hmmm DaveN... one would have thought that just a slight mention of a little known ensemble called the Beatles, might have been made.
  3. I was there on the forest rec., Gregory Boulevard when the bus came by. An image in my memory forever.
  4. The way they are popping up, it seems one can walk out of Poundland straight into Poundland. I noticed today that 454gm salad cream bottles were in the shop on Clumber street, but in the shop next to the Range, at Colwick, the bottles were only 232gm Both £1 of course. There are very good deals in these shops, but you have to have your wits about you as some items are deceptive and can be very expensive.
  5. Hmmm... It seems that my "I can't stands" are being aired without my writing a word. It's very comforting to find one is not alone in one's grumps!
  6. They're still about Shirley ... and I still do them.... and I still have a couple of lasts in the garage
  7. "This is Whitehall one two one two. This is a message for ....... "
  8. But isn't the latest generation turning cockney? I hear the younger generations, all over the country, dropping their consonants like Eastenders. It's what TV soaps do.
  9. Cliff ton That photo of York immediately made me think "Nottingham could have had something like this in the shape of Drury Hill". I have been saying that since the day it was destroyed. That and all the other historic features of that area. I believe there was a time when Long Stairs was the only way into the 'then' town. All the caves ... the many industries .... arghh! It's pointless. They have never cared and never will. It's all about money and greed. The irony is that Nottingham could have had the most prolific and profitable tourist industry outside London. Even the architect of Broad Marsh was eventually to proclaimed that "if he had known" he would never have done it.
  10. It's not a matter of choice, for me. It's a matter of health. If I had good health .... IF ONLY !
  11. No idea or interest in how many steps today, but had a super walk along canal from Beeston to Trent Bridge. Five miles of nice weather, lovely flora and fauna, whilst happy snapping the seasonal changes. I do ache though; everywhere!.
  12. I think you'll find there's 10,000 Cliff Do a recount.
  13. I really enjoy the walk from Beeston along the canal to Trent Bridge. Five miles of relaxed strolling and taking photos of the wild life and changing seasons. Until winter arrives with short days and it is too cold.
